Congressman Allen West Names Names of Communists in Congress

James Krugnel has this at MEDIAite

“On Thursday’s Starting Point, CNN’s Soledad O’Brien held Florida Republican Congressman Allen West‘s feet to the fire over his allegations that up to 80 members of the House of Representatives were Communists. A visibly uncomfortable West squirmed as O’Brien demanded he start naming names.”

Apparently, O’Brien kept insisting that West name names, and was rather persistent about it, asking if this Congress person or that Congress person was a communist.

After a brief exchange, finally West responded with his usual, very direct charm :

“I’m calling it this,” West clarified. “Communist, progressive, Marxist, statist, another term being used. I’m looking at things they believe in. If you don’t think we have to stand upon truth and be able to identify and clearly contrast the different principles and values and ideologies of governance here in this country, then we’re never going to get to the fact of accepting the true debate happening in America. We don’t need a bureaucratic nanny state. We need to stay a Constitutional Republic. I think a lot of people need to study that and understand what it is.”

It’s Classic West:
